Tuesday I arrived back from my trip to the 2012 Arrojo Expo in NY. Words cannot express how inspired I was and how much fun I had!
Needless to say I was dog tired when I got back, but I knew I had a long day ahead of me with Dr Appointments today, so I got to bed early and tried to get a good night's sleep.
I woke up at “O'Dark 30” to take the kids to school and head to downtown Charleston to my long awaited Dr Appointments.
After being diagnosed with Endometriosis back in August of last year, going through hormonal therapy amongst other things, my Doctor decided to ask me about having a hysterectomy.
I had been between Novasure and a partial hysterectomy since December of 2011. I had settled on what I thought would be the best option for me.
After careful consideration from my Doctor I was scheduled for surgery (Partial Hysterectomy) the day after my Lace Wig Mastery Training Seminar.
Although I'm very nervous, I know that God will be in the operating room, and I'm most excited that I will not have to deal with the excruciating pain I've dealt with for over 15 years.
After I met with the doctor, I was immediately sent up to Pre-Op to get everything scheduled and set in stone for my up/coming surgery.
The Nurse Practitioner that did my Anesthesia interview was such a sweet woman. She had some of the most beautiful hair I've seen in a long time.
Once I got in the room she asked me what I did for a living and I told her I was a hairdresser, and she immediately started to tell me about her hair.
It was almost down to her butt! She told me she was growing it out to donate to Locks Of Love! I was so excited, I told her that I make wigs for some people suffering from Cancer.
After asking about the amount of detail that goes into these wigs, then she told me that she was watching a documentary on Tina Turner the other day and learned that Tina made her own wigs!
In the video interview she says she didn't have many, but the ones she did have didn't look like they “came off the rack”.
One word “Wow”! Now, if Tina Turner can entertain and make her own wigs, you can too! You can do the same thing.
You can make them for yourself, or start a business. That Nurse Practitioner said something today that I didn't expect, something that you'd never hear come from someone that wasn't in the hair industry…
“What you do, and what you teach people…that's an art. It's an art to be able to learn that skill and make people feel good about themselves again”
She's exactly right, wig making is an art, but it is a dying art that is being out sourced more and more every day.
My goal is to train thousands of new “Artists” and keep this skill/craft here where it belongs!
I hope you enjoyed this story, please keep me in your prayers.
Take care and be blessed!
